That isn't bad at all however I would put a fuel tank liner in it before it gets any worse. I use Red Kote. It's like pouring a quart of paint inside the tank and you tip it at all angles to get 100% coverage and then pour out what is left and allow to dry. The liner will list more than 10 years.
Actually it starts to degrade, disintegrate and try to travel into your engine if the fuel filter doesn't catch it all.Not really sure. I have a Jeep that had pin hole leaks and I lined the tank with it ten or twelve years ago and it's still in good condition. My guess when it starts failing it would have spots here and there gas would get under it.
I only use the clear filters and there hasn't been anything in them unusual.Actually it starts to degrade, disintegrate and try to travel into your engine if the fuel filter doesn't catch it all.
I would recommend it just as soon as they start selling redcoat remover that works equally well.
... might want to check that jeep fuel filter for any red stuff.
There isn't a fuel filter in either of the tanks. It's a 1975 CJ5 with a carburetor. The fuel pump is on the engine. It has a 15 gallon tank under the back end and a 10 gallon tank under the drivers seat.Your jeep has a clear fuel filter? Isn't there one inside the fuel tank before the fuel pump?
Fuel injected or carb jeep?
